Good to know the Horse Marines are still getting together. Too frail these days to join in! I served in Paderborn, Hong Kong ,Aden and Bahrein. Lulworth gunnery course 1959. Shunted in to being 'C' Sqn Clerk in HK, Aden and Bahrein because I could type really fast !!! Said farewell in 1963.
Would love to come to this but 240 miles may be a bit far now that I'm moving into old age. However, I do remember my two years with the regiment in Fallingbostel fondly, especially when I use one of the placemats that I've kept for all these years.
Hi there, all you old donkey walloppers! This is Dave West.

I was in 1. troup A squadron, then Chobham, then back to Muenster, onto Paderborn, Canada, then I was posted to Bovington, then Paderborn, from there to Aden, Bahrein, back to Sennelager, then to Catterick, UK and demob. I am now living in Perth, West Australia. Everybody is welcome! ;-) Would love to hear from you all, and maybe some pictures? Happy reunion!!!! Dave, Lancer to the end......
Dave, my mate travels down from Golspie in Scotland best part of 450 miles, loads travel down from Notts
Well mate, it's not really the distance but the driving. If we could "car share" from somewhere, that would be great. Other alternative is train I suppose. I've even got some old B/W photos to share, one of an ARC Bridgelayer just after it had plowed through a forest and ripped every single light off the wretched thing. Took me feckin' hours to fix them all,lol.
